      Friday JUNE 27, 6:30PM, MARLTON, NJ. Discussion of future events, opportunities to get involved, and more. Tell us what you want to see from the group. Open to all members. To RSVP or for more info, please contact thevssj@... or Janet at 856-596-3269.



      Each individual in your party (with the exception of children under 12) brings a vegetarian* dish to share that will feed at least 6 people (vegan** dishes preferred so that all types of vegetarians may enjoy the food), along with the recipe or a list of ingredients.  Because of past issues with people not having enough to eat, please bring at least as much as your family is going to eat.  VSSJ provides beverages, so please provide a food contribution.  To promote recycling, VSSJ encourages you to bring your own plate, cup, and utensils if possible (we will have extra place settings).  Due to safety issues, children under 12 must be under parental supervision at all times.  Please make sure to check in at the door when you arrive.

      Vegetarian = No Meat, Fish, or Gelatin.

      Vegan = No Meat, Fish, Dairy, Eggs, Gelatin, or Honey.

      Not sure what to bring?  Easy options include:  garden salad, fruit salad, hummus with chips or crudités.  For a list of recipe sites, visit http://recipes.njveg.com.  Write us at thevssj@... for more suggestions.



      Reservations must be placed with VSSJ, at least 24 hours before the event.  Out of fairness to the restaurant, cancellations are requested at least 24 hours in advance.  Please plan to pay in cash. When we dine at non-vegetarian restaurants, only vegetarian dishes may be ordered.
